41 megapixel Nokia 808 smartphone is expected to be launched today in India

nokia 808 pureviewThe much awaited Symbian Belle OS based smartphone Nokia 808 is expected to be launched to day in India. Nokia 808 always remain in news because of its massive 41 megapixel camera lens. Nokia 808 uses something known as Pure View pro imaging technology which help it to overcome noise in the images.

Not only this Nokia 808 is powered by a 1.3 GHz ARM 11 processor which makes the editing of photos on the phone itself a breeze. It also contains a GPU chip which further enhances its imaging capabilities.

Nokia 808 is based on Symbian OS which can be one of the important point for its low sales. Many people consider Symbian as an out-dated  OS with mediocre application database. Irrespective of the fact that Nokia has updated its Symbian OS to latest and modern version by introducing several useful feature but still it is no where near Android or IOS.

There are rumours however that Nokia will use its Pure View pro imaging technology with their Lumia series phones also. Lumia series smartphones are powered by Windows 7.5 OS which is considered to be one of the top most rival to both IOS and Android OS. The combination of PureView + Windows can definitely help Nokia to regain its lost position in the field of smartphones. This combination has already been confirmed by one of the official of Nokia USA.

Some of the characteristics of its primary camera are given below:

  • It is a 41 MP camera lens with effective 38 MP which can shoot images with maximum resolution of 7152 X 5368
  • It makes use of Carl Ziess lens
  • Autofocus functionality is available
  • Xenon flash
  • 4x digital zoom (lossless)
  • Camera can record videos up to 1080p at 30 FPS
  • Aperture size is officially stated as f/2.8

There is no information on the initial pricing of Nokia 808 but some retailer are accepting pre orders at Rs. 32,000

Which letters are considered as premium in a domain name?

Most of the new domainers including myself usually have this question that which letters are to be considered as premium ones and which are to be avoided at any cost. After searching on Google and reading plethora of information regarding this questions, i came to a conclusion that there is no specific rule defining the importance of the character in a domain name. it entirely depend on the domain name in question. If it is a popular keyword and contains some non premium characters than there is no harm in using that domain as your website. In fact that particular domain will help in SEO of your future website.

But still there are some English alphabets which are considered as premium and non premium. They are listed below:

Letters which can be used in domains without restriction: premium letters

Letters which are to be avoided but can be used if needed: medium letters

Letters which to be avoided always: hated letters

HTC Desire C launched in India at a price tag of Rs. 14,000

htc desire cHTC has recently launched their all new Android based smartphone HTC Desire C in India at an unexpected price of Rs. 14,000. HTC Desire C also features the same GUI (Graphical User Interface) HTC Sense 4.0 as it is present in the smartphones of their One series. As far as hardware is concerned HTC Desire C is a big flop. It is powered by an age old mediocre 600 MHz processor which was used in earlier generation of smartphones. 1GHz is the norm today and most of the applications and games actively require high clocks to run smoothly. Also there is no GPU present in this phone to process graphical requirements of the application and particularly games.

And because of the mediocre hardware present in HTC Desire C, i will not recommend any one to purchase this phone. Instead buy Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini at Rs. 9,500 which has a 1 GHz CPU and a dedicated Adreno GPU for best gaming experience. Xperia mini is also upgradable to latest Android ICS 4.0.

Detailed Specs about HTC Desire C are listed below:
